2410221 3ds 640x640When you buy a new console, like the Nintendo 3DS, chances are the last thing you would expect is to find porn on it. Unfortunately this happens more often than we would like as back in 2012, a similar case happened at GameStop, but this year it looks like the blame has fallen onto Wal-Mart. Tom Mayhew had gone to Wal-Mart and purchased a Nintendo 3DS handheld console system for his 8-year old son who decided to play around with the console’s camera and took photos of himself and his siblings. However when he went into the gallery, instead of finding photos of himself, he instead found pornographic material.

According to Mayhew, “It was a shocker because we had family here, and there were a lot of kids here. The kids were the ones that discovered those pictures. There is no reason for them to be even really on there,” he added. “It’s disgusting for one. It seems that this was the only thing left on it.” The time stamp on the images showed it uploaded/taken in early December, while the console was purchased on the 23rd of December, meaning that the unit they had gotten was a returned product that someone had forgotten to wipe prior to returning it. Unfortunately Wal-Mart has yet to respond to this issue although we expect that the right thing to do is to offer a refund and maybe even gift a free and brand new console as a token of their apology, assuming they were at fault to begin with.
